CBS — A group of teens violently attacked a mentally challenged woman at random in Chester and recorded the entire incident on tape. During the vicious attack, which was later posted on Facebook, the teens could be heard screaming obscenities and even laughing. Police say on Thursday morning, an anonymous Chester resident alerted police of the taped incident that was apparently posted on Facebook. The video starts as the group of teen girls are walking down Morton Avenue. Several seconds into the video, one of the girls casually walks up to the year-old victim, who was sitting on her front step, and began to punch and beat the victim.

MIAMI — The six teenage girls accused of beating a classmate and filming the attack for the Internet made their first court appearance on Friday, looking down and occasionally covering their faces with their hands and hair to avoid a gaggle of cameras. The six girls were seen by the judge via video uplink from the jail where they were being held. They and two male classmates were charged as adults with battery and kidnapping in the March 30 attack in Lakeland, a lower-middle-class town in Central Florida. The beating left year-old Victoria Lindsay, a cheerleader, with a concussion and two black eyes. The combination of violence, girls, video and criticism of the Web seems to have made the case a magnet for attention and outrage. The Internet, in particular, has become the preferred outlet for comment.

Two weeks later, both teens were reported missing after they were last heard from on Dec. For nearly three months, family members and authorities conducted an exhaustive search for the teenage couple, hoping they were still alive somewhere in the vast Utah desert. But on March 28, authorities found their bodies, bound and stabbed, feet down an abandoned mine. Powell, 18, was found with multiple stab wounds on his body, while year-old Otteson's throat had been cut open, authorities said.
